GRL’s Lab in Karlsruhe, Germany Approved by Qualcomm to Provide Quick Charge Testing and Certification

Industry-leading GRL USB Type-C® Power Delivery analyzers and testers also approved to perform the full range of Quick Charge testing

Granite River Labs (“GRL”), a global leader in test and certification services and automated test solutions for digital connectivity and charging technologies, has announced that its lab in Karlsruhe, Germany has been approved by Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. to offer the full range of Qualcomm® Quick Charge™ Technology testing and certification services.

Karlsruhe is the latest facility in GRL’s global network, which includes labs in Santa Clara, Yokohama, Taipei, Shanghai, Dongguan and Bangalore, approved to conduct Quick Charge 2.0, Quick Charge 3.0, Quick Charge 3+, Quick Charge 4, Quick Charge 4+, and Quick Charge 5 testing and certification.

Qualcomm Technologies has also approved GRL’s USB Type-C® Power Delivery analyzers and testers, making them the only instruments currently on the market officially authorized to perform Quick Charge testing. The GRL C2-EPR automates USB Power Delivery compliance testing at up to 240W while the GRL C2 supports all compliance test specifications for USB Power Delivery 3.0 and USB Type-C Alternate Mode designs.

GRL’s analyzers and testers allow designers and manufacturers to begin the process of making products Quick Charge compliant much earlier, and innovate without increasing the risk of delays during the certification process or missing their time-to-market window.

Quick Charge certification verifies that the products tested meet Qualcomm Technologies’ standards for performance and safety. Chargers that are not Quick Charge certified run the risk of shorting or overheating, which can harm devices and chargers.

“GRL has supported the testing needs of the Quick Charge ecosystem for many years offering services and cutting-edge testing solutions that customers can integrate into their development and production processes. We are pleased to work with Qualcomm Technologies to support a world-class product development ecosystem in Europe. The approval of the Karlsruhe lab to conduct tests and certification for Quick Charge makes it easier than ever for our European customers, allowing them to unlock the potential of Quick Charge and enhance the mobile device experience for end users everywhere,” said Lutz Menzfeld, General Manager at GRL Germany.

GRL is a leading innovator in compliance testing, with a proven track record for providing accurate and reliable USB PD verification.
